I'm definitely more Harry Potter, but that may be because I haven't seen LOTR...?

If you think Harry Potter is better than LOTRs then you need to seriously rethink your life.

LOTR is so slow and boring. Harry Potter on the other hand..!

Lord of the Rings in every sense. Better universe, better written novels, better characters, better movies.

There's like 2 decent Harry Potter films, but the entire LOTR trilogy is a masterpiece.

Lord of the Rings by a long shot, both in terms of books and movies. I do still like HP though.

I could not agree more. Incomparable imo.

Most of the Harry Potter films dragged. If the films were anything like the book then you could have made a case, but then again you could say that about LOTR.
BATMAN trilogy:cool:

Lord of the Rings in terms of the movies. I loved both movie series - I saw all of the Harry Potter and all of the Lord of the Rings films in the cinema. But Lord of the Rings wins it for me by a long way. Just everything about the trilogy was fantastic - the battles, the character development, the 'baddies', the dialogue, the scenery.

Lord of the rings are so much better, the acting is on point.
The Harry Potter books, however, are the best!

In what sense? Everything is one big cliche, and Rowling doesn't even have a fraction of the writing ability as Tolkien.

I haven't read LOTR so I can't judge, I meant the HP books over the movies

Lord of the Rings. Harry Potter is predictable at every turn, you know when a death is coming, you know who is going to live, you know who is expendable. Don't get me wrong, it is good but it's just a bit bland and is the archetypical good vs evil story whereas Lotr is a bit more than that.

Lotr is better acted too, bar Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman and Ralph Fiennes the acting is appalling
